This American Liberty Cross stitch Pattern is perfect for the American Independence Day Celebrations on the 4th of July. With this sweet Little Birdie holding the American flag you can join in with the celebrations!

It is a quick stitch and ideal for any beginner or experienced cross stitcher.

It is available to download below as a colour pdf , if you prefer black and white just print the colour version, I am sure it will print ok.

Cross Stitch Mini Cat Pattern

My stitching this week

I finished stitching this adapted version of the Stay Safe mini cat pattern that I designed here I just added a bunch of flowers and removed her mask, I have added the pdf pattern to that page and also in a link below.

The Aida fabric was cut a bit too close for comfort but I just managed to get away with it!

I hand stitched the ric rac pink ribbon but the stitches showed through. I think next time I may glue it on with fabric glue.

Roses in my garden

I have been doing a little bit of gardening this week, tending to my roses. Here are some photos of my roses in France, if you received my newsletter you will have seen my roses in my previous home in England.

I hope you love them as much as I do!

I purchased this in France and forgot to make a note of the name.
